  1. Casden West LA will be permanent Carmageddon… realigning the runways at LAX will be permanent Carmageddon… I think Carmageddon has jumped the shark.

  2. “People will be waiting in cars!” is brought out of the barn and marched around community hearings and public meetings like a godhead statuette during a holy festival. All must bow and throw coins at it, make way for it, pay a penance for it.

    I am pretty sure that the greatest cities on earth or not judged by how fast its citizens can drive through it.

    In fact, some of the worst places to live are the easiest places to drive through.

    Do I like Casden West? I don’t even know what it is. I am just sick of all this stupid moaning about automobile throughput. Streets are not the sole domain of cars and I’d rather that the city not to self-destruct in order to enable suburban living.
